I was born and raised in the Grand Rapids Area. I started working in radio in Whitehall in 1985. Went back to Grand Rapids for less than a year and got a better gig in Muskegon in September of 1986. I also worked at a few restuarants and in construction while going to school before going full time in radio.
I started rockin' with WMRR in March of 2009 and never looked back! I always loved rock music and finally get to work with it everyday!
Eric Clapton is about to release his 21st solo album, "Old Sock," on March 12 and head out on a spring U.S. arena tour, including the guitarist's Crossroads Guitar Festival at New York's Madison Square Garden in April. See him when you can: In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Clapton reveals his touring days are winding down.
"The bit onstage, that's easy," Clapton, 67, tells senior writer Brian Hiatt. "If I could do that around my neighborhood, that would be great. You have guys in Texas that play their circuit, and it keeps them alive. But for me, the struggle is the travel. And the only way you can beat that is by throwing so much money at it that you make a loss. So the idea is, I'm taking a leaf out of JJ [Cale]'s book: When I'm 70, I'll stop. I won't stop playing or doing one-offs, but I'll stop touring, I think."
Hiatt notes that Clapton has always hated dealing with immigration officials. "And security," Clapton adds. "I never get it right. I forget to take off my belt, or I have change in my pocket. Next thing I know, 'Can you come over here, please?' I just don't want to do that anymore," he says with a laugh.
